Farmers Field School Curriculum for Pollination Management in Nepal

Farmer Field Schools (FFS) are traditionally an adult education approach, a method to educate farmers in an informal setting within their own environment. FFS are “schools without walls” where groups of farmers meet weekly with facilitators. FFS is a participatory method of learning, technology development, and dissemination based on adult learning principles such as experiential learning. The defining characteristics of FFS include discovery learning, experiential education, farmer experimentation, and group action.
